Dr. Roger Girard is a rich scientist conducting experiments on head transplantation. His caretaker has a son, Danny, who, although fully grown, has the mind of child. One day an escaped psycho-killer invades Girard's home, killing Danny's father before being gunned down himself. With the maniac dying and Danny deeply unsettled by his father's death, Dr. Girard decides to take the final step and transplant the killer's head onto Danny's body. Of course, things go horribly wrong and the two-headed creature escapes to terrorize the countryside. Written by

[as the 2 headed monster wakes up]
Whatta you know. He can talk.
Who are you?
I'm your brother.
I don't have a, a brother.
You do now. I don't like it any better. But until we can do something about it, I'm running this monster, understand?
Uh, my neck hurts.
My neck hurts, stupid. Don't you see what these maniacs had done to us?
Stop jerking around. You and I are now one, dummy. Let's stand up. I'll show you.

This is a great party movie. My friends and I have watched it together at least four times since we were teenagers. There are so many laughable moments that I could list, but here are just a few favorites:
Casey Casem is a main character (a doctor), but also provides the voice of every news announcement heard on radios in the film! (Did they think we wouldn't notice?)
Bruce Dern saying "Johnny, this is an axe. It is used for chopping wood, and NOTHING ELSE."
Dern again, upon completing an autopsy of a lab monkey: "You know, if this little guy had been healthy, he'd still be alive!"
The totally gratuitous "lady getting out of the bathtub" scene.
The soundtrack is consistently inappropriate for the action on screen. I particularly love the opening titles -- a drippy love song comes directly after a maniac's menacing laughter.
Stilted acting, poorly written dialog, cheesy 70's clothes, a ridiculous premise, and totally unconvincing makeup effects make this one of the best scoff-able titles out there (even beating "Gymkata")! Recommended for your next scoff-fest!
